Wolf Hunting

Hunting / Hunting Guide / Wolf Hunting

This will be Wyoming’s first wolf hunting season since 2013. And Ken Mills, the Game and Fish’s lead wolf biologist, says the animal is difficult to hunt, as evidenced by only a 1-2 percent success rate in previous seasons.

Though with pack size growing without hunting seasons for four years, Mills speculates wolves may be a little easier to locate this season.

The season runs Oct. 1 to Dec. 31 in most hunt areas in northwest Wyoming where wolves are designated as trophy game animals and hunters have the responsibility to follow the appropriate regulations and monitor the harvest quota to know if their hunt area has been closed. Where wolves are designated as predatory animals in Wyoming, there is no harvest quota and hunters may take wolves year-round, but must report the take to Game and Fish.
